In 1975, the Countrymans moved to Montana to follow the Lord’s call to minister to the Native Americans. They have pastored three churches within the state and over the last 40 years have lived in the small ranching community of Big Timber where they purchased 24 acres that is now the location of the Four Winds Ministry Center.
Highly educated and qualified, both Ron and Kathy serve tirelessly to show Christ’s love among the Native Americans. Their community involvement includes Ron serving as a reserve deputy for the Sweet Grass County Sheriff’s Department, as well as the Chaplain, and Kathy served as a substitute teacher at the high school and was also in charge of the School to Work and Adult Education programs.
The Countrymans have endeared themselves to the Native Americans and in 2008, they received one of the greatest and most infrequent honors—the Turnsplenty family adopted Ron and Kathy into their family and into the Crow Indian nation.
Four Winds has been used for many years for training, equipping, and commissioning those called by God to share His message to the lost. Their dream is to one day have numerous foster homes for Native Americans on the property and reach as many children as possible with the saving message of Jesus Christ.
Only through your generosity and support are they able to continue to minister to those in spiritual and physical need.
